Far in the north of Peru are the beaches of Mancora, Punta Sal and Las Pocitas.
This is a desert area with a dry climate and long expanses of Pacific beaches to enjoy. This is a popular surfing spot and is known for sophisticated hotels or restaurants. However, some excellent new properties are appearing, of which we have selected the very best in the more secluded spots.
This is a great option for those looking for some beach relaxation in their trip to Peru whilst avoiding long flights to other countries on the Atlantic or Caribbean coast of the continent.
When to go
The northern beaches of Peru hit peak season from May to September, however are temperate all year round.
